Hi, everyone, Patrick here. Today’s post is going to be a little different than usual. No cocktail recipes or bourbon reviews, but I promise there will be a brief bourbon connection today.
As many of you know, There Will Be Bourbon is based in Boston, which is still shaken by the attacks at the Boston Marathon. Everyone who lives here (and the population of visitors who flew in for the Marathon) is experiencing profound shock and grief right now. If you would like to help out, consider donating to One Fund Boston, which was established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino in response to Monday’s events.
On a different and lighter note, in addition to my love for bourbon and writing, I also enjoy basketball and creating art. When the guys over at Double Scribble asked me to contribute some basketball art for the their show, In The Paint—which opens tomorrow in Cambridge, MA—I jumped at the opportunity to combine as many of my interests as possible. One of my pieces is a mash-up of the premier bourbon with former Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach. In The Paint opens tomorrow at Voltage Coffee & Art, and I invite you to stop in and view the artwork, which will be on display for six weeks.
